COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The tenacious grip of big, juicy hop aroma and character slides smoothly into rich, dark malts. This heavyweight battle between fresh, Yakima Valley hops and dark, roasted malts is resolved harmoniously as the flavors merge to deliver complex satisfaction with a warming edge. Enjoy the ‘twilight’ for the bright and brassy hops!

drowland (8888) - Georgia, USA - DEC 20, 2011
12/20/11. 12oz bottle. Brown pour, reds under the light, with a thick, frothy tan head that cuts in half and laces in sporadic sheets. Bold hop aroma of pine, citrus, a bit of cattiness, and underlying touches of chocolate. Somewhat sweet entry with milk chocolate, citrus, pine, and lingering roast. At first read, that sounds terrible - but it’s pretty tasty. The mouthfeel is highly carbonated, burning.

bytemesis (8808) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear ruby red with a large tan creamy head that slowly dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma its caramel, pine, citrus, toffee. Flavor is medium sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body. Quite a tasty beer.

Ibrew2or3 (8748) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Pours copper with thin white head. The mild aroma is a mix of earthy and spicy hops with some mild sweetness around the edges. The taste is fresh crisp citrus and spicy hops. Actually there are lots and lots of tasty hops here supported by a tenuously thin layer of malty sweetness.

3.8
Svesse (8692) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2010
(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Dark brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, hoppy nose with caramel, dark fruit, chocolate and fresh citrussy hops. Malty taste with notes of chocolate, coffee, caramel, a touch of cocoa and a fresh, citrussy bitterness in the finish. Well balanced and tasty beer combining the nutty, malty character of brown ales and the fruity, hoppy character of an IPA. Not an easy thing to accomplish, but this is quite excellent. Nice one.

3.6
nimbleprop (8594) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 6, 2009
On tap at Churchkey, Washington DC. Pours an amber, orange with a frothy white head. Strong citrus aroma. Well balanced flavor, citrus fruits, well rounded sweet, caramel malts. Sticky, bitter finish. Drinkable.

3.9
Plovmand (8534) - Grindsted, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2011
Bottle. It pours reddish amber with a creamy light tan head. The aroma is citrus, peach, passion fruit and caramel. The flavour is highly fruity hoppy with notes of light roasted malt, caramel, peach, citrus, grape fruit, light alcohol and berries. Nice long fruity hoppy finish. Quite creamy texture.

jredmond (8445) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 13, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a dark brownish red body. Aroma is grapefruit, pine hop and maybe some peach. The mouthfeel is somewhat aggressive hop, with dominant flavors being grapefruit, citrus, and pine hop.

3.4
jackl (8271) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle. Thanks to Seth (again) for the pour! The appearance is deep brown/amber with a small head. It certainly doesn’t look like your typical black IPA! The aroma’s massive sweet chocolate cake, cinnamon, general spices. Some charred grain. The taste is more spicy sweet cinnamon cake. Bitter, green grass. Large roasted malt body, bitter chocolate. Smooth, somewhat thick on the palate. Overall, not bad!

3.5
drfabulous (8224) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAR 29, 2010
Very malty, bready IPA. Hops lend to the malt. English IPA style. Musty. Ok overall.
